Double Your Pleasure?
The (rounded-off) results of our orgasmic contraction poll are as follows, at least as of today:
Orgasmic Contractions % of Respondents
1 – 3 104 – 7 528 – 12 2513 – 16 817 – 20 2More than 20 3
The reason I am interested in this is that I have a sense that we are not necessarily locked, genetically, into a set orgasmic contraction pattern.
Contractions occur every 0.8 seconds. This we know. A man who has 7 contractions therefore has a peak orgasm period lasting about 6 seconds with pleasurable sensations occurring both prior to the contractions beginning (with the feeling of ejaculation inevitability), and a bit after contractions cease.
A man who has 20 orgasmic contractions experiences 16 seconds of orgasmic high. “Waiter, I want to order what he’s having.”
Before I started PE a couple years ago, I was in the 4 – 7 contraction range like most of you appear to be. Now I am in the 16- 20 contraction range. Orgasms last longer than they used to and they are also generally more intense than they used to be.
I know only a little about the “Why” of the contraction increase that I experienced, but I hope that together we can better understand the mechanism here so we might all increase the durations of our ejaculations and perhaps make our orgasms more intense than we are currently experiencing them. And let’s try to keep this discussion separate from being “multi-orgasmic;” let’s instead figure out what elements can make one orgasm last longer.
The change for me has something to do with Kegel exercises and the strength of my PC muscle. I’ve been doing Kegels for years. They have become second nature to me; I’ve found I do them unconsciously sometimes.
Another factor in my own contraction rate seems to be ejaculate volume. The more fluid there is to ejaculate, the more contractions that occur, at least for me. My volume has always been pretty high. This is possibly a genetic factor. Average is 2 - 6 ml and I am now 7 – 9 ml. (9ml confirmed by a hospital lab recently in a seminal fluid test, completely unrelated to what we are talking about here.) I believe I added the additional 2 ml or so after taking L-arginine and Maca regularly, and by always staying well-hydrated.
But, some guys shoot in a couple of heavy spurts (most of their total volume leaving the urethra rather quickly) whereas others of us tend to ejaculate less with each shot, however over a longer period of time.
What I am suggesting in this thread is that we put our heads together and try to come up with some good theory so that we all might perhaps “double our pleasure.” Or maybe even do more than that.
